One of my very favorite things is a vase of fresh flowers in my house. Flowers always add life and color to a room. Something cheerful to admire. A piece of your home that changes weekly. If you are like me, you are constantly clipping blooms from your yard and bringing them inside. Or perhaps, you stumble upon a bouquet at the store that you can’t live without. And at the end of the day, you end up with a lovely bundle of flowers that are begging to be displayed in your home. This short lesson on arranging flowers is to encourage you to not just PLOP the flowers into a tall glass vase and be done, but to thoughtfully arrange them into an “effortless” accent piece for your home. (You will be an expert in no time!)
Step 1: Gather all of the supplies and fill your vessel with water.
Step 2: Cut all foliage off of each floral stem.
Step 3: Hold the flower up to the container to determine the length to cut the stem. *Always cut longer than shorter because once it’s gone, there’s no going back!
Step 4: Cut the stem at a 45° angle with your snips.
Step 4: Place the flower in the vase at an angle.
Step 5: Continue to add flowers into the vase remembering to place the outer stems at an angle.
Feel free to post some of the beautiful arrangements that you were able to create for your home!
